a grown up Easter

Apr 11, 2012

this year was the first year I’ve ever had a grown up Easter- the first year I haven’t spent with my family (or my roommate, Kate’s family for that matter)

clearly this is a milestone. And it was clearly worth of Bacon (yes- capital B)

I decided to kick it up a notch with the deviled eggs. Shockingly, this recipe is from KRAFT’s website no less (stumbled upon a la Pinterest-where else?). However, I made a few changes and added Avocado (yes, capitalized. Are you sensing a pattern here?)

What you need:

  • 12 hard-boiled eggs (the recipe called for 8, but I thought that was weird- so I used a dozen)
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 3 tbsp. Ranch dressing (this also gets capitalized, as it is another one of the main food groups)
  • 4 slices bacon, finely chopped
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp chopped lettuce, finely chopped
  • 1/2 avocado, finely chopped
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • paprika to garnish

What to do with it:

  • Scoop out all egg yolks into a bowl. Combine with mayo, ranch, tomatoes, cooked bacon. Mash with a fork until well mixed.
  • Add the avocado at the last minute, so it doesn’t brown.
  • Scoop or pipe back into the egg yolks, sprinkling the lettuce on top
  • Finish with a dash of paprika!
  • Voila! You have BLT Deviled Eggs!
